First Edition. Copy 121 of 137 copies signed by Samuel Beckett. Printed by The Rampant Lions Press on fine English handmade paper. Beckett's writing is a previously unused and unpublished section from the short story - The Lost Ones.

Size 15 3/4 inches tall x 12 1/16 inches wide. Wrappers, in paper folder, publisher's original cloth chemise and slipcase. Fine. Avigdor Arikha (1929 – 2010) was a Romanian-born French-Israeli painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and art historian. His knowledge and skill of art techniques were aligned with those of another close friend, renowned photographer  Henri Cartier-Bresson.  He is best known for his portraits, nudes, still lifes, and landscapes, and he illustrated some of the texts of Beckett with whom he and his wife, American poet and writer Anne Atik, maintained a close friendship until the writer's death in 1989. Beckett also contributed introductory and other content to books by and about Arikha's art.

9 NABOKOV, VLADIMIR Lolita - A Screenplay
New York McGraw-Hill 1974 
First Edition, First Printing. Signed by actress Sue Lyon in red ink on a card affixed to the front flyleaf. Lyon starred at age 14 in Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's novel. Sue Lyon appeared in such films as John Ford's 7 Women, Night of the Iguana with Richard Burton, The Flim-Flam Man with George C. Scott, Evel Knievel with George Hamilton, etc. Having retired from films in 1980, Sue Lyon's autograph is very uncommon. This books prints Nabokov's own screenplay for the film which in many ways is quite different than the finished film. Fine in a dust jacket with one tiny tear and the most minute hint of wear.
